Using a mobile phone for pregnancy testing may provide more accurate results than traditional pregnancy tests. Can you believe it? Let’s explore the truth about this pregnancy testing method in today’s article by FPT Shop!
What is the mobile phone pregnancy testing method?
Mobile phone pregnancy testing is a method that uses a specialized pregnancy test stick and a mobile phone application to check for pregnancy. The First Response Pregnancy PRO application is the first early pregnancy diagnostic application developed using this technology.
Similar to regular home pregnancy tests, the First Response pregnancy test diagnoses the result based on the level of HCG hormone in your urine. The special thing is that this test can connect to your phone via Bluetooth and display detailed result information on the application.
Currently, the First Response Pregnancy PRO test is priced between $14.99 – $21.99 (about 340,000 VND – 510,000 VND) and includes free access to all features in the application.
The golden time for using the Pregnancy PRO test
The level of hCG hormone increases as the pregnancy progresses, so the closer you use the First Response test to your expected period, the more accurate the result will be. The application gives accurate results about 6 days before your expected period. According to laboratory tests, First Response gives the following results:
Number of days before expected period

Where can I buy the First Response pregnancy test?
Currently, the First Response Pregnancy PRO test is not widely available in Vietnam, so there are not many shops selling it. To purchase the test, you can check out some foreign apps such as Target, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Amazon, Rite Aid, and Kroger.
What should I do when the pregnancy test result is positive?
If the result is positive, indicating pregnancy, you should see a doctor to confirm the result. If you think the result is not accurate, still consult a doctor for advice.
What should I do when the pregnancy test result is negative?
If the result is negative, it means you are not pregnant or you may have tested too early. If you still haven’t had your period after 7 days, try again with the First Early Result Pregnancy test.
It’s possible that you have misremembered your menstrual cycle or the concentration of pregnancy hormones in your urine was not enough for a positive test result. If you test again and the result is still negative and you still haven’t had your period, immediately see a doctor for examination.
Does the pregnancy test result change after leaving it for a while?
The pregnancy test result is accurate when read within 3 minutes. The test result after 10 minutes is no longer valid.
I’m taking medication, will it affect the test result?
Only medications containing the HCG hormone can affect the test results. The test will not be affected by hormone therapy medications containing Clomiphene citrate, alcohol, pain relievers, antibiotics, or contraceptives.
